Today I am back on cutting board cam! Things get a little shaky, but I swear I haven't been drinking. The Birthday Fairy sent me the recipe for brownies, and I was eager to get into the kitchen and make them for you. But the recipe calls for walnuts. I found out in my first challenge that walnuts make me retain serious water. So, I whipped up my own version of brownies based on the recipe. My ingredient list is kind of wild, but don't be afraid. They're delicious! And even extra nutritious since I threw in a shot of bee pollen!
1/3 C pine nuts
1/3 C sunflower seeds (I probably say sesame seeds in the video. I always do!)
1/3 C pumpkin seeds
1 C pitted dates
1/4 C cacao powder
Pinch of vanilla powder
1 TBS BEE POLLEN!!
Soak the nuts, seeds, and dates. Then blend all in food processor until smooth and sticky. Spoon onto a plate and put in the freezer to flash freeze. When flash frozen, put bites into an airtight container and leave them in the freezer until you're ready to eat them. Pop them into your mouth, or put in dehydrator to warm them up.
